The Massachusetts Minutemen are one half away from their first win of the 2012 season -- and their first MAC win, as UMass currently leads Akron at halftime, 15-0.
Kicker Blake Lucas is perfect through the first half, as the kicker has been called upon three times for field goals -- and converted on all three.
UMass' touchdown came in the second quarter, when quarterback Mike Wegzyn completed a 24-yard pass to Alan Williams, putting UMass ahead 12-0. The Minutemen missed a subsequent two-point conversion attempt.
Through the first half, Wegzyn is 12-of-25 passing for 172 yards, with a touchdown and an interception.
UMass' defense has played extremely well, holding the Zips scoreless -- despite 201 total yards by Akron. Akron quarterback Dalton Williams is 15-of-23 passing through the first half for 136 yards, but has thrown three interceptions.
Akron running back Jawon Chisholm leads all rushers with 62 yards so far.
